Feeling Disconnected

Do you ever find yourself staring off into space, not wanting to move or do anything?  Do you ever feel numb, emotionally blocked, or slightly agitated by everything, perhaps even a tinge of self-loathing?  Like you're frozen in a static state of disconnection and angst?  If so, you are NOT alone!

 
We may exist in an elevated state for days or weeks, then suddenly find ourselves knocked off-course, suddenly flailing in tumultuous seas, just trying to keep our head above water.  This feeling can easily turn into depression if we're not careful.
 
So what can you do to feel more connected?  Simple answer:  Go Within.
 
But how?  Here's some ways:
 
1). Meditation - Breathe deep, eyes closed, sit/lie still for 15 minutes, focus on your breath.  Allow thoughts to pass like clouds in the sky.  Witness, acknowledge, then let the thought go.  Return focus to your breath.  
 
2). Yoga or Dance around - (Kundalini Yoga!) Stretch, move, have fun.  Low-impact, but move your body.  Dance like no one's watching!  Except maybe your cat.
 
3). Chant/Hum - Repeat OM for 1-2 minutes and you will feel the difference.
 
4). Reiki Session (or self-Reiki* for those attuned) - Reiki is like meditation to an exponential degree, it solidly re-connects you.
 
5). Epsom/Sea Salt Baths - Add some Ylang-Ylang essential oil & a few Lepidolites for a deeper state.
 
Anytime we're feeling disconnected and melancholy, self-care is our highway to re-connection! Heart
